We were very disappointed with the cost of the pub grub and the portion sizes. I personally had Fish and Chips for £14 I was served with 7 chips a very small piece of fish and a small spoon of mushy peas. My local pub...serves a full size freshly battered fish with more chips than you can eat and peas for £7.90 I will not be returning to the FleeceMore

Two couples revisited this quaint and historic Pub for another memorable lunch. The truly homemade Steak and Ale pie was superb. The Service was very friendly and efficient and the table layout gives plenty of space. The building is steeped in History and has a...welcoming Log fire which is a great focal point. Definite asset to this pleasant Village.More

What a delightful place tucked away. We got parked but might be difficult on a busy day. We missed the time slot for lunch so we just had drinks in the garden but we`ll be back another day. A little piece of history with very...friendly and welcoming staff.More

It’s a family tradition to visit this pub every year and never does it disappoint. On our visit to the cotswolds this time, we ended up coming here twice in two days and it was beautiful. The staff are lovely, the food is great and...it just has a magical ambience I’ve never found anywhere else. Sitting outside on a summers evening is a must! Plus, fantastic vegan food too. I enjoyed the vegan pie, and the moving mountains plant based burger on day 2. The vegan sticky pudding is not to be missed! Was lovely to see so many options. Thank you for keeping this special place as wonderful as it’s always been xMore

Super meal in the beautiful orchard at The Fleece Inn in Bretforton last night. Although it was busy, as you'd expect on a lovely summer's evening, there was very little wait for drinks or for our food which came promptly. The ordering app works really...well, although we still preferred to order our food from one of the delightful waitresses who are now armed with iPads for efficient & speedy ordering. We had poached smoked haddock with panko-breaded Vale asparagus, smoked salmon salad, the Moving Mountains veggie burger, and the asparagus-season special pizza with parma ham. All delicious. And our kids made light work of their halloumi sticks, fish & chips and pizzas. At a time when the whole hospitality industry is struggling to recruit staff, you couldn't tell at The Fleece last night. Very well done!More

Still wondering how could they have a slot for a couple for lunch on a glorious bank holiday day, yet glad they had. And glad we found it, despite satnav saying our dedtination was in the middle of nowhere (don't trust it and check your...way beforehand). Not your regular pub - much more restaurant quality, and I loved the asparagus specials. Very good local ales, while wine selection was small but good and very honestly priced. Service was great and the inside dining room looks like a Tudor period drama set - apart from the fact that it is original. Only negative side, it's not closer to home to visit regularly!More

We were drving around the Evesham area trying to find one of the old asparagus pubs, and the name of the Fleece popped up. So off we went to find it. Tucked away in a corner off the main road. The parking was difficult as...the inn does not have its own parking.But we made it and went into the yard area. There was plenty of seating here and in the garden, so we were happy to be directed to a table. Two or three young women were serving very efficiently and there was a good choice of local bitters and ciders. The pub had a feel of Old England about it and this was a most enjoyable visit.More

We had read very mixed reports about this place so unsure what to expect. We needn't have worried the food and service were excellent. It is tiny but full of atmosphere, stone floors, open fire, genuine oak beams. We both ordered their famous steak and...ale pies with chips, peas and gravy. These were served very promptly by a a pleasant cheerful lady. They were the best steak and ale pies ever. Packed ful of melt in the mouth beef. We asked for extra gravy and 2 minutes later a jug arrived at our table. Deserts were quite nice. My pana cotta was a bit solid but very tasty. Hubbies sticky toffee pudding was light and delicious. All in all lovely meal with excellent service. Will return if we visit this area again.More

We chose this as National Trust members who were going to be in the area and it looked like a nice treat for the first meal out since Lockdown ended. Parking is difficult (nothing in the Inn itself so it has to be on nearby...roads) so please allow plenty of time. Inside we got the feeling the main problem was lack of staff. As soon as we sat down we were rushed to give our full order. Usually you order drinks first and then get time to read the menu. We had looked online beforehand so had a idea. I asked for pizza because of this, and it was available but we were not offered a pizza menu on the day so we wouldn’t have known otherwise. The asparagus soup was delicious and came with generous butter for the bread. There was quite a wait for the main meal. My enormous pizza was delicious (too much for one!) but my husband’s fish and Chips were disappointing with the ‘hand cut’ chips thick and very dry inside. Then we waited and waited for our plates to be cleared and a second drink to arrive. We then waited a further long time for our desserts (ordered at the beginning if you remember). Due to COVID Regs you don’t feel you can get up and go looking for staff. Finally someone came and asked if we wanted anything else. This made us realise our pudding wasn’t coming so as we didn’t feel like waiting any longer we paid and went. We were also chilly inside and had to ask for a blanket. It was rather dark too. Perhaps the fire is usually lit but wasn’t allowed at the present time. With all that has happened this year it seems churlish to complain and hopefully there will be improvements as the season goes on. It looked very attractive outside and we wish all the staff the best.More

Hello, we serve our full asparagus menu from 23rd April to 21 June to coincide with the growing season and British Asparagus Festival. We are hoping to get some early gras to offer as a special before then though. Thanks
